Scotiabank invests in future business leaders
Nineteen young persons, between the ages of 15 and 19 were recognised on September 21 for successfully completing the inaugural Scotiabank Vision Achiever Youth Programme.

The graduates and their parents were addressed by Marcia Gaudet, Director, HR, Scotiabank East and South Caribbean who spoke of the Bank’s commitment to young people, “Young people are our future leaders, and Scotiabank’s goal is to help provide them with the necessary skills and resources they need for success,” Gaudet said.

3rd: 18-year-old Analisa Ramsaran
They received $10,000, $5,000 and $3,000 respectively towards achieving their entrepreneurship goals.
